Food for rumination

My friends have been kind enough to introduce me to these quotes which, unlike most others, strike a note somewhere within me.

If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us walk together.
- Lila Watson

Yesterday, I shambled after as I’ve been doing all my life after people who interest me,
Because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!”
And so I shambled after.
- Jean-Louis “Jack” Kerouac
